Wonderful fit

I've been making masks with this pattern since last year and the fit is great. And the tutorial makes it super simple for everyone to make them. They have the same detailed text with pics as all T&T patterns. Thank you for sharing this one for free

Diane McPhail (Epping, AU)
excellent patterns and instructions with tips and suggestions

These are excellent patterns but the difference between twig and tale and other sites is the clear and helpful instructions. I especially liked the suggestions for ties and elastics and careful note of how to insert a nose wire.

Love love love the shaped mask pattern

I’ve made the shaped mask 7 times now, fiddling around with the pattern to get a good fit to wear with glasses, & came back to the original pattern with an inserted nose wire in the top seam. I steal the wire out of the medical disposable ones I sometimes have to wear. And I use the ear loops from them as well. The black one is fine wool & so soft! Masks to look at in the street are now a ’thing’

The perfect mask pattern!

The pattern is easy to follow and makes a great comfortable mask! I've tried other patterns but this one is by far my favorite!

Sue (Palmerston North, NZ)

Fantastic pattern which produces a comfortable mask. I'm a novice sewer & have been able to produce lots of masks for family. I would highly recommend this pattern to everyone.

Janet (Auckland, NZ)
Easy to follow

Great instructions, very clear and always gives a lovely result. Thank you.

Sandra Welburn (Lower Hutt, NZ)
Easy pattern

Both the patterns were very easy to make using the clear instructions provided, the fit is good as well. I found the panel version was very easy to make and comfortable to wear.

Customer (Whangarei, NZ)

Since masks are almost a fashion statement these days my family need lots of different colours and too expensive to buy so making them so easily with a professional finish is awesome. We found smaller size best for us.

Christine (Tauranga, NZ)

Very pleased with these patterns which have good clear instructions to follow. Finished results were a comfortable fit with no fogging to my glasses.

Sophie Ferguson (Christchurch, NZ)
Great patterns for everyone to try!

These patterns are well written and easy to follow even for “sewing scaredy cats” like me. I encourage anyone who wants a mask that fits, made from whatever gorgeous fabrics
one likes to have a go with these patterns. You won’t regret it! Sophie from Nelson NZ
